St. Jude Hospital Confirms Eric Trump Helped Raise $16.3 Million

Why does the NYT seem almost disappointed by this news?!4519!3!169294122668!e!!g!!saint%20jude&ef_id=VrgLuQAABX96VtAb:20170107192819:s

Last month, President-elect Trump tweeted his disgust that his son, Eric, would have to stop fundraising for charity.

Needless to say, the left went into a frenzy trying to disprove the President-elect’s assertion.

They cannot.  According to the Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Eric Trump has helped raise over $16 million dollars over the past decade.

The New York Times reports:

Eric Trump has helped raise $16.3 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital of Tennessee over the past decade, a hospital official said in a letter sent to a charity run by Mr. Trump, the president-elect’s son. The letter comes as Mr. Trump is preparing to remove his name from the charity to avoid conflicts of interest that could emerge from future fund-raising.

The letter confirms an account Mr. Trump gave to reporters that his organization has raised more than $15 million for the hospital, despite available tax records showing that the Eric Trump Foundation raised less than half that amount.

. . . .  The St. Jude letter said that since its establishment, the Eric Trump Foundation had raised — or helped raise through affiliated groups — $16.3 million for the hospital, which offers free care to needy children.

“I am amazed by the many ways that you have personally embraced our cause and cared for our children and families,” Richard C. Shadyac Jr., president of the hospital’s fund-raising organization, wrote in the Dec. 30 letter, which Mr. Trump provided to The Times. “As you are aware, we are expanding our lifesaving work and are working to push cure rates even higher in this country and around the world, while improving the lives of survivors by developing and advancing treatments that reduce side effects. We are only able to do this because of the support provided by donors and supporters like you.”

I get the sense that the NYT is a bit disappointed by this turn of events.
